Dr. Kessler is pleasant in interactions, I've never felt particularly heard, nor did I ever feel he really took the time to explain things to me (pacemaker patient w/ complications) & make sure that I understood. I also never felt he tried to go out of his way to be helpful, advocate on my behalf etc or go that 'extra' step - but, yes, he always did his job. I've been under the care of about 3 other cardiologists over the yrs in different states & I would say I felt more comfortable & had more trust in them but it's likely due to demeanor more than skill; though I have through personal experience questioned the lack of demeanor & how it impacts care - i.e., not being able to truly 'hear' what the patient is telling you when describing symptoms or problems that on the surface may not appear to be such but if you listened with an open mind & focused on the person instead of pre-determining that you already know what is happening, you might not miss some things (or at least catch them

I had rapid pulse (above 200). Went to first hospital and their cardiologist could not get pulse rate down. Then requested to go to Heart Hospital of Austin. There, Dr. Kessler prescribed a medication that brought pulse to normal within 15 minutes. I have been going to Dr. Kessler for over four years on a regular basis. I feel Dr. Kessler is tops in his specialty.
